Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bland music, marquee-friendly casting and crassly contemporary dialogue give this film the mechanical feel of a marketing exercise, not a movie."
‑ Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
"It's less the story of Sinbad than a compilation of greatest hits from Mythland."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Fun, if standard, animated adventure with battles, innuendo."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"As routine as many live-action adventure films, right down to the competent but fairly undistinguished art and animation."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Even the voices of Brad Pitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Catherine Zeta-Jones can't save this movie from just feeling "blah...""
‑ David Foucher, EDGE Boston
"Ray Harryhausen's original stop-motion Sinbad classics are a hard act to follow, but Tim Johnson and Patrick Gilmore's update, couched in a gorgeous palette of indigo and dark rose, is a big, beautiful thrill all its own."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"A movie carefully engineered for an audience of exactly nobody."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Despite its flaws, this is a fun well-acted piece of escapist fare with action, romance, adventure, and monsters galore."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Handily outdoes [Treasure Planet], with bravura action set pieces, a surprisingly complex romantic triangle, and thoughtful exploration of moral issues and character."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"It's a decent summer distraction for restless little ones, but not much more."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Business-as-usual movie that isn't trying to make anything more than a medium-size splash."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The effects are competent, the action has exciting moments and the story is interesting enough, but the parts don't add up to a compelling sum."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A visually exhilarating mix of hand-drawn and computer-generated images that sets sail with a rather mediocre and clichéd script."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"While younger kids will enjoy the magic and adventure, the real mystery is whether older audiences will respond as well."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
"For all of its freedom of movement, the film lacks real personality, and in parts, it's oddly serious-minded."
‑ Jesse Hassenger, PopMatters
